The Academic Support Services division of Student Affairs is now accepting proposals for its annual professional development conference: “Empowering Academic Support Services: Nurturing Belonging, Fostering Persistence, and Amplifying Student Success.” 

The virtual conference will take place Monday, August 22, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. This professional development opportunity for academic support champions—including tutors, academic coaches, and supplemental instruction leaders—will offer workshops, panel discussions, and multimedia presentations that explore the college’s four values for promoting change: Courage, Compassion, Joy, and Yes. 

ACC staff and faculty are invited to submit proposals for sessions that illustrate how tutoring, peer leadership, and academic coaching can nurture belonging (Compassion), foster persistence (Courage), and amplify student success (Joy), as well as session proposals focused on modeling leadership excellence (Saying Yes).

Proposals may be submitted HERE through Friday, May 10.
